TC Helicon VL3X

Using an IPad with Onsong to send midi to VL3X. When I select a song on The IPad it sets up the VL3X patch. All good. Loops or Track ready to trigger. I start the IPad by touching the screen starting non-linear scrolling and my lyric sections highlight through the song. I want to use midi to tell the VL3X to start loop or track at the same time using a midi command. Midi in options on VL3X seem very limited and I can’t find a way to do it. Have to stand on one foot, touch the iPad and press a button mapped footswitch on the VL3X simultaneously. Balancing act. There has to be a better way?

Hey @Ballad,
MIDI control of the looper is a widely-requested feature for VoiceLive 3 but unfortunately it has not yet been implemented.  For now your current balancing act is the only way to start OnSong scrolling and VL3 looping simultaneously.

Thanks. At least I know that I’m not missing anything dumb and can stop puzzling over it!
